Convert Length

Length is used to measure distance or size. We primarily have two main systems for measuring length, metric and imperial. The latter, is used in America, Liberia and Myanmar, while the metric system is used in the rest of the world. Some countries such as the UK, Canada, South Africa and Australia use parts of the british imperial system in everyday speech, but it is still the metric system that is officially in use.

The fact that the two systems are used interchangeably, in addition to the fact that there are several old length units makes the need for length converters clear. On this page you will find converters for both the metric and british imperial systems, as well as some older units.
